Get Woke, Get Cancelled: The Sun UK Reports That Game of Thrones Prequel Pilot Was Rejected By HBO For Being "Too Woke"

Oh my goodnesss.

Even HBO thought it was too woke?

Think about how woke it must have been. HBO specializes in Woke Television for House-Bound Liberals and Obese NeverTrumpers Who Want to be Part of the Twitter Club.

Thirty million pounds -- down the drain because they put the project into the hands of untalented #Woke ideologues.

THE Game of Thrones prequel starring Naomi Watts was axed after HBO decided the [30 million pound] pilot was "too woke".

It was to feature the first White Walker as black, put lesbian characters at the heart of the plot and make one of Ned Stark’s ancestors mixed race.

...

The series, in which the main theme was to be colonialism, was being run by writer and producer Jane Goldman -- married to TV and radio presenter Jonathan Ross.

...

A source said: "HBO were terrified the first prequel would scare hardcore fans. It was very different to the original series, but was very brave and bold."

Brave and bold. Stunning and brave.

By the way, George Lucas did a YouTube reaction video, reacting to the latest Rise of Soywalker trailer.

He did not like it.

Okay, so that's fake. Those of you who didn't already see it might have started to realize it was fake about thirty seconds in.

It's actually a really good verbal impression of Lucas combined with a deep fake video.

So funny.

And true!

Another one: Lucas reacts to The Mandalorian.
